Most Favorable Review
Kingston 32GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model SD4/32GB
Kingston 32GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model SD4/32GB

Pros: Worked as expected. I used this in a 10 Megapixel Nikon camera. I had no problem formating with with my camera and taking about 500+ photos so far. I'm happy having a working product.

Cons: none come to mind.

Overall Review: I just wanted something reliable. I got burned looking to save a few bucks buying imitations from questionable off-shore retailers and/or auction sites.

DOA - intermittently fails

XFX Radeon HD 6950 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity HD-695X-ZNFC
XFX Radeon HD 6950 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity HD-695X-ZNFC

Pros: At 10inches, it fits in my case easier than a longer card. When the card works, I can certainly say that the performance is nice.

Cons: I'm having the same experience as other 1-star reviewers. It gives me grey or blacks screens with vertical lines. I'm guessing it's either the card itself or problem with drivers. Same system works fine with my previous card. I experience problems basically when I want to do anything on my computer like browse web or play games.

Overall Review: I never purchased any computer component that has given me this much of a headache. It pretty much started giving me problems out of the box.

RTX30 finally arrived to a genuine gamer. Pretty rare for 2021. [ TY newegg! ]

GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce RTX 3070 MASTER 8GB Video Card, GV-N3070AORUS M-8GD
GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce RTX 3070 MASTER 8GB Video Card, GV-N3070AORUS M-8GD

Pros: - Aesthetically pleasing. - The addition of this card alone can add plenty of "bling" to an outdated build. - Temperatures below 60C while gaming. - The nice performance boost I would expect from an RTX3070.

Cons: - I really wanted the RTX3080. - Bundled with $220 AMD Motherboard I was not planning to buy. - I've got a thumbscrew but needed a screwdriver to install.

Overall Review: - Before I had purchased this card, my life was on discord and youtube channels monitoring for RTX30 drops. The drops often happen at very inconvenient times. Also, you can be doing everything correctly but still fail repeatedly. Every so often someone else would manage to buy an RTX30 card and announce their purchase on social media. So I kept wondering when would be my time... and it finally happened. - I'm really thankful for the opportunity to buy this through the NewEgg Shuffle.

very satisfied thus far.

GIGABYTE M27Q 27" 170Hz 1440P KVM Gaming Monitor, 2560 x 1440 SS IPS, 0.5ms (MPRT), 92% DCI P3, HDR Ready, FreeSync Premium, 1x DisplayPort 1.2, 2x HDMI 2.0, 2x USB 3.0, 1x USB Type-C, Height Adjustable
GIGABYTE M27Q 27" 170Hz 1440P KVM Gaming Monitor, 2560 x 1440 SS IPS, 0.5ms (MPRT), 92% DCI P3, HDR Ready, FreeSync Premium, 1x DisplayPort 1.2, 2x HDMI 2.0, 2x USB 3.0, 1x USB Type-C, Height Adjustable

Pros: - KVM switch (USB hub) is nice bonus - Stand (Adjustable height and Tilt) - USB-C port will be great for connecting laptop - nice selection of ports for connectivity - nice refresh rate for gamers (I'm upgrading from 60hz). - HDMI cables and Display cable included. - no dead or bad pixels. (YMMV, I got lucky)

Cons: - cable insertion is inconvenient. - USB cable for KVM is rather short - USB-C to USB-C 3.2 display cable not included. - only two USB ports for KVM switch

Overall Review: I purchased this product off recommendation that it's great for both work and play. I've been pleasantly delighted with this purchase as it's something very nice I can use for work as well as recreation. The consider the KVM switch very much a necessity along with the UCB-C port for work. I now can't imagine having a monitor without these. The stand was a lot better than I had expected and customization in height and tilt are very welcome. With regards to gaming, I've mostly played with 1080P resolution thus far and I'm very pleased with the refresh rate. The desktop looks great in 2K and it's so convenient being able to fit more on the screen at a higher resolution. Whenever I can find available components for upgrading, I'll look forward to playing more and more games in 2K. Other things that made me happy were the innovative joystick in the rear for changing settings and the quality of the monitor stand. I'm so happy that this fell into my budget. I felt this review as a bit premature. I feel I will unlock more goodness from using this a bit more. However, I've been very satisfied with this purchase thus far and wanted to put this out there. Considering I've been working remotely more and more late and spending more time gaming, I wish I had made this purchased sooner.

Mad Catz R.A.T.TE Tournament Edition Gaming Mouse for PC and Mac - Red

Pros: Very light

Experienced minor issues.

EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1573-AR GeForce GTX 570 HD w/Display-Port (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1573-AR GeForce GTX 570 HD w/Display-Port (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: I like the extra room in my case compared to other cards which can easily touch the HDD drive cage. EVGA support is second to none. I cannot emphasize enough the security of a lifetime limited warranty. I cannot say anything bad about the performance.

Cons: 1.) The card did not display on POST. It worked OK after Windows came up. I'm not sure if that's incompatibility with the BIOSTAR motherboard or not. I opened a few cases and did a lot of troubleshooting. I found a workaround but then the card eventually stopped displaying in Windows as well so I had to submit an RMA. 2.) I missed out on my rebate. It's really my fault I feel the nature of the promotions can be unforgiving. Like you have to pretty much mail out your stuff right when it arrives.

Overall Review: I'm going through the RMA process now and EVGA has good support with speedy response via their website. They offer cross-shipping if you cannot wait for the round-trip. The main idea is that you buy one and then hopefully that same card comes down in price when you're thinking about upgrading to SLI. I don't see that happening.... maybe it's just too soon but I would like to see this priced a little lower with more newer technology available.
